Why Choose ERP?
Why Choose ERP Software?
There are a variety of reasons a company might choose to implement ERP software. Perhaps your current system is no longer supported or has become obsolete. Maybe you’ve outgrown “off the shelf” software like QuickBooks. Maybe you’ve lost control of inventory or lack the data you need to make important decisions and keep your company moving forward.
Whatever the reason, ISM offers a range of ERP software solutions to meet any need and budget. From the small Mom and Pop shop that simply needs better reporting to a large enterprise with multiple locations and complex warehousing requirements, ISM is your partner in success.

Your ERP in The Cloud
The ERP products we offer are available in the cloud or installed on your servers. Whether you like the ownership, control and customizability of a traditional on-premise ERP solution or prefer the IT simplicity and flexible pricing options of SaaS-based cloud ERP, ISM gives you the freedom of choice.
ISM Private Cloud
ISM offers private cloud hosting for every business solution package we provide. What’s a Private Cloud? Instead of hosting your business system on a server managed by a large third party, ISM offers clients a section of our very own private server dedicated solely to our clients’ systems. You buy the system and we’ll host it. That’s transforming your business processes.
8 Benefits to Hosting in the Cloud
Scalability: Cloud hosting technology offers incredible scalability and has the ability meet the on-demand needs that businesses can run into when running business software applications. Whether it is hardware, software or bandwidth limitations, most issues can be scaled on-demand to quickly ensure stability in all scenarios.
Platform Deployment: Whether you just need access to your business application or need to see the back end of your entire system, there is a service platform for any scenario. PaaS (Platform as a Service), SaaS (Software as a Service), and IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) are all services typically available in addition to other hybrid options.
Availability: One of the major benefits to Cloud hosting is the anytime, anywhere access. Because systems are typically used remotely, they can be accessed nearly anywhere you can use a wired or wireless internet connection. This means businesses that thrive on mobility can access their crucial data nearly anywhere they could possibly need it.
System Management: An additional benefit to hosting is pro-active system management that is often offered by providers. These managed services ensure your platform stays well-oiled and continues to run reliably without the need for additional IT management on your organization’s behalf.
Security: Every year thousands of laptops are misplaced, stolen, or broken. Centralized data storage with cloud hosting ensures data security, and immediate access from any machine or location. So if your workstation takes a dive, no need to fret, that mission critical data is still accessible from any compatible workstation with an internet connection.
File Consolidation: Emailing documents from employee to employee can put a heavy burden on your email system as well as be time consuming and tedious with regard to collaboration. By consolidating company resources to one location, any employee, from any location can have access to shared files. This can result in better efficiency as well as less stress on your core internal systems.
Backup Recovery: Cloud-based services typically offer a variety of backup and recovery options. It is not uncommon to see practices in which your system and its information is backed up both locally and off-site. What does that mean? Typically it ensures timely disaster recovery in the event of system failure. Depending on the amount of data, recovery can be reduced to minutes or hours, rather than days or weeks.
Elimination of up-front business resources: We all know the up-front cost of building your internal hardware infrastructure can be daunting as well as very time consuming. This is one of the biggest benefits to hosting your system. By moving to the cloud you can eliminate those up front burdens with little to no initial cost, as well as monthly billing. Additionally, with the cloud, the hardware is already in place. This means that the turn-around time for setup can be accomplished within days or even hours of your initial purchase.
